Now that summer is here, many patients are looking to make some changes to their smiles. As your trusted cosmetic dentist in Asheville, NC, we are happy to provide high-quality cosmetic dentistry services at Red Maple Dental. Here are three cosmetic dentistry solutions that are perfect to pursue this summer:
Most patients will experience teeth discoloration at some point in their lives. The discoloration is often caused by staining agents that are in common foods and beverages that we all consume on a regular basis. Foods like red berries, tomato-based sauces, or artificially colored candies often contain staining agents that stick to your dental structures long after you’re finished eating them. Additionally, beverages like soda, tea, and coffee have similar effects. To help counteract these effects, we offer professional teeth whitening services. Professional teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most effective ways to transform your smile. Our teeth whitening services remove stubborn stains from your teeth surfaces, making it a quick, affordable, and suitable cosmetic treatment solution for anyone interested.
Minor chips and cracks in your teeth can take away from the overall aesthetics of your smile. Dr. Shawna Hoffert offers composite tooth bonding procedures for patients who have minor cosmetic or functional issues. Tooth bonding can usually be completed in a single office visit and is often a very affordable approach to restoring your tooth after dental damage. Using a composite resin material that closely matches the natural color of your tooth, Dr. Hoffert will cover up any small blemishes on your tooth and then file down the hardened material until it blends in seamlessly with your smile. While teeth bonding isn’t always an option for patients with severe chips or cracks, it is a great option to resolve any minor cosmetic issues you have with your smile.
For patients interested in a complete smile makeover this summer, porcelain veneers are the way to go. Porcelain veneers are similar to dental crowns except they only cover the front-facing portion of your tooth. Depending on your budgetary and cosmetic goals for your smile, you can get one veneer or a mouth full of them. Veneers are great for concealing issues with your smile like whitening resistant stains, unsightly gaps, or misshapen teeth. Additionally, veneers only require a small amount of enamel removal making them a minimally invasive and relatively quick procedure. If you are interested in finding out if porcelain veneers or any other cosmetic dentistry service will help you achieve your dream smile, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Hoffert today. During your initial consultation, you and Dr. Hoffert will discuss your personal goals for your smile. Then, you will be presented with the treatment options you need to achieve those goals.
